the re-elected president obama delivers his state of the union speech, the number two republican in the house is making over the gop message. eric cantor speaks to the american enterprise institute about 90 minutes from now. this morning he spoke exclusively with our dana bash. dana, i want to bring you in on this. eric cantor is not the first republican to shake up his party and give a new direction. there's a brand new poll that shows president obama has a 70% approval rating among hispanics, are republicans listening more to that than eric cantor or a little of both? >> reporter: a little of both. i think if you ask eric cantor they are not mutually exclusive. a big part of why he will give this speech is because republicans understand what happened in the last election. which is that they got the majority of white men, that's about it. but interestingly enough, when it comes to immigration, we have seen big movement on the senate side, especially among republicans. but still house republican leaders, including eric cantor, they are still very cautious, when it comes to immigr
